Fantastic! I'd crop a bit off the bottom, though.

Classic!
#1 is excellent, Tanner!
Second one would be great if it had a few drops erupting from the centre, but there's so much texture there!
Thanks for sharing.

I love the motion of the water in the first one.

Great shots. I've been thinking about trying this for a long time, but not sure if I can put together a decent setup. I also don't have much ambient light, so I'd have trouble getting decent shutter speed. These are terrific. I guess #1 is my favorite, although the yellow is really close...Sometimes your work with macros makes me want to delete all of mine...I rarely get anything as clear and sharp as you always do.

Thanks Tamia! I'll post a crop to show the refraction sharpness on that one.

Trust me, as long as you have a flash this is something anyone is capable of doing. I took these at night, when I was extremely bored = no ambient light.

Thanks for the compliment, I really do try hard to get as you said, clear and sharp results, and am very persistent until I achieve them. I can't remember any of your macro's but im sure they are fine It just takes a lot of practice, persistence, and technique.
